Title (EN) CONTAINER-LESS CUSTOM BEVERAGE VENDING INVENTION
(FR) DISTRIBUTEUR AUTOMATIQUE DE BOISSONS PERSONNALISÉES SANS RÉCIPIENT
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatus describing a convenience beverage vending machine and its operation are described. An embedded computer interface allows consumers to create their own drinks or choose from a menu of drinks. Drinks are dispensed in a container. The beverages may be made from hot water, cold water or carbonated water that is mixed with various flavors of syrup, sweeteners and nutritional supplements. Identification may be presented and the computer recognizes the consumer and pulls up that consumer's account to determine funds available and previous drink selections and mixtures. The machine may incorporate an automatic cleaning cycle for both the valves and the dispense area.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil décrivant un distributeur automatique de boissons et son fonctionnement. Une interface informatique intégrée permet aux consommateurs de créer leurs propres boissons ou de choisir dans un menu de boissons. Les boissons sont distribuées dans un récipient. Les boissons peuvent être fabriquées à partir d'eau chaude, d'eau froide ou d'eau gazéifiée qui est mélangée à divers arômes de sirop, d'édulcorants et de compléments nutritionnels. Une identification peut être présentée et l'ordinateur reconnaît le consommateur et consulte le compte du consommateur pour déterminer les fonds disponibles et les sélections de boissons précédentes et les mélanges précédents. La machine peut intégrer un cycle de nettoyage automatique pour les deux vannes et la zone de distribution.
